Real Wedding Clients: Sara and Shawn at Patapsco Female Institute

Sara and Shawn got married at one of our favorite Maryland venues, Patapsco Female Institute. We love doing weddings at PFI, especially in the Fall! We love this venue for it’s interesting architecture and which as you’ll see photographs amazing well. However, it is one of the most challenging venues to work with! Oh well, nothing great comes easy is what we say! Congrats to Sara and Shawn on their entrancing wedding!
